Tab Gallery it’s a two level Flash gallery that has support for JPG , GIF, PNG image viewing and for FLV playback. The first level is represented by the categories (tabs). The list of tabs is located at the bottom of the application. The number of tabs can be unlimited and each tab has it’s corespondent in the XML file in the “category” tag. If the list of tabs is too long, a mouse sliding behavior will be enabled. The list will slide horizontally according to the mouse x position. The image used for displaying the tab has to have 56×56 px.
Each category can store an unlimited number of files represented by the “file” tag in the XML .A file can be a JPG , PNG, GIF or FLV . The preview (thumbnail) is an image wich doesn’t have to have fixed dimensions, it will be scaled and smoothed to fit the surrounding rectangle. Files previews (thumbnails) will have a certain icon depending on the file type (image or video) and if it’s a video file, a play button will appear. If it’s too long, the list of thumbnails can scroll vertically by dragging the right handle or using mouse wheel. The right handle will increase or decrease the scrolling speed depending on the distance from the original position (the middle of the screen).
At the top, it’s the title bar wich will display the current category name and the number of files inside it.
Clicking a thumbnail will launch the Viewer wich will display the big image/movie with a description bellow and the navigation buttons. Clicking on the big image/movie will close the Viewer. Movies can be totally controlled by using the control bar.
Each resize of the window will reposition the elements. There is a size restriction, the window can not be under 800×600, but that can be modified.
You can add your own files and text by editing the XML file. The graphical elements can be found organized in folders/subfolders with intuitive names inside the Library. The ActionScript files are stored in a project for easy access.
Overall, it’s a nice gallery that can help you organize and display your favorite files (images, movies) and share them to your friends/clients/the world in an elegant and professional manner.
